3 Day Juice Fast: Day 2

Posted Aug 11 2011 3:00am

Morning guys!

My second day of juice fasting was another succes. Having only juice fasted for single days before, I was a little apprehensive about what day 2 would bring me – would I get crazy hunger and cravings? Feel faint and weak? Also, I had a spa afternoon planned with my mom so I had to give my juice regimen some thought. I was happily surprised when my mom informed me the spa also offered -freshly squeezed- juices. Score!

(My) Juice Fast Outlines:

  • Drink 4 glasses (=2 liters/70 oz) fresh juice per day (minimum, but I already have a hard time making it to 4)
  • Daily at home Bikram yoga
  • Daily magnesium-oxygen and probiotic supplements
  • Daily colon cleansing supplement
  • Daily  oil pulling

Day two intake:

  • 9 AM – 2cups/500 ml water with juice of half a lemon
  • Maca/spirulina/powdered greens in water
  • One bottle filtered water during/after Bikram
  • 11:30 – Juice #1: Green Lemonade (500ml/2 cups)
    ( 1/2 large head endive, 3 stalks celery, bunch dinosaur kale, handful spinach, 1 lemon, 1 orange, ginger, Stevia) note: wayyy too bitter
    + 1 magnesium-oxygen supplement, 1 probiotic supplement
  • During my spa visit: juice of one young coconut (2 cups/500ml)
    Juice #2: Orange/apple/pineapple/ginger juice (2 cups/500ml)
    fresh mint tea, lots of water
  • 19:00 – herbal tea
  • 20:00 – Juice #3: Cabbage Juice (500ml/2cups)
    (red cabbage, 2 oranges, 1 celery stalk, ginger)
    +  + 1 magnesium-oxygen supplement, 1 probiotic supplement
  • 21:00 Herbal tea

= 4 juice (5, including my maca/spirulina/powdered greens blend)

Day two activities:

  • ~50 minutes at home Bikram Yoga in the morning
  • Spa visit

Day two bodily stuff:

  • Some very very slight sensations of hunger in the morning
  • Don’t feel too different from other days, just no incidence of being stuffed or weighed down by food, no bloating etc, which is nice!
  • Felt good/normal all day, hit a serious slump between 18-20:00. Felt very slow and spacey. Also got a little hungry during this time. Drinking another juice instantly made me feel great again.
  • Skin is looking really good!

Day two thoughts & observations:

  • Had the weirdest dream last night! I dreamt I was eating bread and then suddenly I realized I forgot I was fasting! Lol, and it felt so real, scary…
  • Been reading a lot of journals from others that have documented their long-time juice feasts (30-100 days) and am in awe
  • I was surprised to not have any profound detox symptoms and hardly any  hunger once again…
  • Also surprised at how easy this all feels, and how smoothly things are going…

It was so great juice fasting while visiting a spa! The heat didn’t turn out to be a problem at all, like I had feared a little. It was nice to facilitate the cleansing process even more. I treated my mom and myself to a half an hour of massage which was lush, and the cute masseur turned out to be very into holistic healing as well. He was delighted when I told him I was juice fasting haha. Awesome, no?

All in all another pretty uneventful day, in terms of juice fasting/detoxing! Other than hitting a serious slump in the beginning of the evening (I suspect not having greens/too much sugar in my afternoon juice and waiting too long before making a new one), my energy was pretty consistent and nothing extraordinary.

That wraps up day two of liquiding! By the time you are reading this, I’m closing in on three days/82 hours of fasting- whooo, can’t wait to eat some fruit again :D (ok ok, and chocolate)

For those of you that are juicing right now: how’s it going for ya? I am so curious to see what others experience.

If you’ve ever done juice fasts, care to share your experiences? Also, did you take any supplements?
